The Universe Keeps Expanding

The universe keeps expanding
but we can’t, so it seems
we are contracting —
smaller and smaller,
more and more vulnerable
to all the events expanding
which spells significant trouble
to our notion of importance
especially when in the midst
of that expansion,
a killer virus has no intention
of retraction; it just keeps
keeping on till all in its
path is gone and then we ask
the feckless Feds to do what
they were elected to do —
help keep us safe
in a universe and budget and deficit
ever-expanding
while we are constantly contracting —
smaller, smaller, smaller, almost gone.
So, I suppose
that if we are to get any
rest at all, that rest will be
in Thee and Thy eternal love
expanding exponentially.
